I'm starting to make guitars, ive already completed one, and im working on another.. im wondering about some tools that will.. help me with the building
so far.. i have a router.. and its been a bunch of fun cutting out the guitar bodies with my router.. woo.. i also have a rotary sander.. and a drill.. sweetsetup huh?
so.. what do you guys think i need?
drillpress? ive needed one for a string through body, and ive also seen those little barrels wrapped with sandpaper, and that looks like itd help a tonnn

Jigsaw or bandsaw?
i need one or the other, im just looking for versitilty.. so far it looks like the bandsaw would be much more helpful than a jigsaw

ill also need all those little nitty gritty tools like for fretboards.. ive had to use other necks because i dont have any fretting tools.. are there any cheap alternatives instead of those overpriced stewmac things?
